standing at the door
a new life wakes up at morn
to the birthing light
there are many certain things that are reserved to human liberty, especially for females; when our lives have been dictated by a patriarchal society, we at least deserve the right to our own body and lives.
nevertheless, that’s not what this haiku is about; it’s about new life being a gateway into another world. the morning, to me, is what symbolizes new beginnings, and this is why i love it when certain flowers open only during the day to close out night or when flowers close in the morning when open at night.
